Abstract

Forensic science poses unique challenges to educators and students, as it has a strong theoretical base, but is also highly practical and vocational. From preparing a crime scene house to setting test questions, this volume offers a comprehensive guide to delivering aspects of high quality forensic science education through a variety of means. It evaluates current methods of teaching, learning and assessment practice in forensic science, at all levels of tertiary and higher education, including universities, continuing education and professional training establishments.
Bringing together contributions from leading forensic experts, this volume discusses:
* Pedagogical uses for new technology including apps and e-gaming
* Creating practical classes on a budget
* Creating high-reality mock disaster scenes
* Virtual anatomy tools
* Translating forensic business methods internationally
Forensic Science Education and Training: A Tool-kit for Lecturers and Practitioner Trainers provides a unique set of resources, experience and practical advice for teachers, teaching assistants, lecturers and trainers in many areas of forensic science. It will also appeal to professional scientists, forensic science students, researchers in forensic science or professional trainers and training course providers, within police forces and law enforcement agencies.
